Music as medicine

Joy Morin at Color in My Piano posted the following quote today:

“Music is the medicine of the breaking heart.”

~Leigh Hunt, English essayist and poet

The Lacrymosa from Mozart’s requeim is the perfect medicine for a breaking heart – offering sympathy and a sliver of hope – not a quick fix but something much deeper. After living through the emotional turmoil of the harmonies throughout the piece, the last chord is a sigh of relief and a ray of sunshine. I love these videos for the simple but profound depictions of the harmonies.
